Jerry Zolten, associate professor of communication arts and sciences at Penn State Altoona, who recently participated in the special release event of Exploring the Rise and Fall of Paramount Records at the New York City Public Library, was featured in an article on Penn State's News site.

Zolten's latest research projects focuses on the emergence in the early 1920s of the Paramount record label (no association with the Hollywood film studio), which offered a national platform to African American artists, who went on to have important but largely unexplored influences on the mainstream music of subsequent generations.
